[Buildbot-devel] accessing force scheduler values in ShellCommand

You probably want to use a subclassed ShellCommand, and not use WithProperties.

I think you have to do this all in start (so that self.build is definitely available).

You can access all the build properties via self.build - however that will contain ALL properties. To limit it to just force build fields you need to filter based on the source of the property:

    def start(self):
        for key, val_source in self.build.getProperties().properties.items():
            value, source = val_source

            if source != "Force Build Form":

(I'm not 100% if that is the actual value of source you need to filter by, but iirc it matches what you see in the WebStatus view for a build).

There are probably neater ways to get the list of properties that are similar - the API has changed in recent buildbot releases - but this basic approach is working for me in 0.8.7.
